is remote ssh like remot3.it/weaved possible?
I was wondering if anyone has a solution for remote ssh into an omega much like the solution provided by remot3.it / weaved. The omega is behind a firewall so I need to tunnel.
I use the remot3.it service on a raspberry pi all the time and it is very handy.
I looked at shellinabox, and I don't think that will work as I would need to port forward and that is just not possible with my deployments.
Thanks in advance.
In doing more searching through the forums, I found this:
I am assuming that this is still the best answer.
My use case my be slightly different, in that I do not have control of the network where the device is deployed so having the ability to tunnel ssh through the onion cloud is a really important feature.
@Boken-Lin You mentioned in the referenced post that the Onion cloud would allow for remote access to the Omega. I was wondering you had any idea of rough timelines for such a feature.
I am evaluating different solutions for my project, and being able to have this kind of remote access to devices in the field is a 'must have'.
Keep in mind, that I won't have access to the network where the devices are installed, or port forwards, etc is just not an option.
@Patrick-Ryan I noticed in another thread that someone mentioned pagekite.py which seems to do exactly the same thing as remot3.it / weaved and is donation ware ( I donated, I think it's well worth it! ).
can be found at pagekite.net
One of the nice features is that by exposing the omega's webserver you can then take advantage of the terminal app :-)
I'm so chuffed to have found this, it really bridges the gap until onion hopefully bring terminal into their cloud app and the flexability of pagekite makes lots of other interesting things possible
Credit to the contributors in this thread for giving me the heads up on pagekite:
@Robin-Lefever Thank you very much. I just signed up and installed it. It seems to work great for both exposing the web application and a direct ssh terminal.
I really appreciate the pointer.
@Robin-Lefever Do you have a startup script to start page kite when the omega starts? Can you share you startup script.
